The ABCs of Managing Money

Keep Yourself in Check!

When it comes to paying off debt, the initial payments can be exciting! For once you are seeing that balance go down. However, “things come up” (which is why we encourage an emergency fund!). So this could affect what you could pay towards your debt. Don’t let it continue once the “emergency” is over. Keep a check on where your money is going (always tracking your accounts) so that you can spot any mishaps in your plans. Don’t get in the habit of making up your own “emergencies” as well. Just because your friends suddenly decide to go out tonight, and you want to go, don’t sacrifice your goals for one night of fun. That’s not to say you can’t go — just try to find a way to cut costs.
